5. AC Propulsion tzero Roadster: 0-100 km / h in 3.6 s
He needs only 200 horsepower to squirt with great nonchalance from 0 to 100 km / h, thanks to the "body" they sturdy, but lightweight. In addition, he made many victims, surpassing in drag competitions (start + 400 meters) a bunch of Porsche 911, Corvette and even a few Ferrari F355, which beat savagely beating him almost 20 feet! Tzero is produced by Californian company AC Propulsion, has a range more than "pretty good" (at least compared with other present from the top) of 482 km and cost an estimated $ 220,000.

Bolide price could be much more peppery but because AC Propulsion has produced only three such prototypes, in 2003, to demonstrate that an electric car can be both fast and efficient, but inexplicably abandoned the plan to develop roadster acquis in the series. 6 years ago, Tzero ranked 2 of this top.
4. L1X-75: 0-100 km / h in 3.1 s
It is what we might call a ghost car. There appears to be a single parent in the world, which was discovered in New York in 2007, the American journalists from Popular Mechanics magazine. They have photos and have posted a video on their website to show that Fatos "green" vehicle you wander painted in red is not just a chimera. Photography remained and spread on the Internet, but the moment that I saw him L1X-75 straining his muscles in action disappeared ...
Since then, no longer knows nothing of it; although the makers of L1X-75, Hybrid Technologies Inc. and Mullen Motor Company, also sent from time to time in press releases announcing what happens with the prototype. Of these, we found that L1X-75 has 600 horsepower, a top speed of 281 km / h and costs $ 125,000.
3. Wrightspeed X1: 0-100 km / h in 3.07 s
The prototype looks like a hybrid between a car and carting one of Indy-500, but is strong and already has a resume appetizing, being cheered in the famous show Top Gear, two years ago, when he made an appearance in the landscape fireball green. He also was the protagonist of an episode of the popular series from Discovery Channel, MythBusters, in which, through 5 tests, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman wanted to demonstrate why a green car is better than a Ferrari. And they Resus: all 5 tests were won by X1.

Runner-up three runs with a three-phase AC motor, which catapults it from 0 to 100km in 3 seconds and has no shifter - a single press on the accelerator reaching top speed: 180.2 km / h. It is powered by batteries with hybrid technology, lithium-polymer, not cheap (they cost only $ 40,000) which gives a range of 160 km. The value of the prototype is estimated somewhere around $ 200,000.
